Innovative construction

In your lifetime, you will normally only build once. Therefore, it is even more important to lay the correct foundations for your own four walls from the outset. Included herein is a long-term and future-oriented construction, from the masonry through the façades to the paint. And with this you can not only comply with today’s ecological consciousness but also save time and money through the innovative methods and products.

 

Satisfy yourself with our extensive opportunities surrounding innovative construction.

Mortar panels revolutionise masonry construction

Building materials for masonry are in a constant cycle of change: growing requirements for the building shell, like through the EnEV 2014, require you to constantly adapt your technical capabilities. And the processing methods must also be adapted to this. The innovative maxit mörtelpad (mortar pad) is setting new standards in masonry construction: it consists of dry mortar, a water-soluble hot melt and a glass fibre fabric, which ensures additional robustness. This revolutionary combination ensures that masonry can be created in a more targeted, higher quality, and simpler manner - with significant time savings.

Here you will find the maxit mörtelpad website.


With the façade design it is not only about the durability, weather resistance and robustness nowadays, but also particularly about creative room for developers, architects and painting companies.

Instead of orientating ourselves to luminosity as it has been done until now, it is now possible to design optionally intensive colour designs with our maxit intens products without sacrificing in terms of aesthetics, energy-efficiency and durability. This allows reliable colour planning according to individual colour desires as well as the reproduction of individual colour pallets such as RAL or HKS, in order to design, for example, façades of company buildings in line with the corporate design. The high colour and light endurance guarantees a long service life without fading.

Products, which surround people, should not only be nice and functional,

but also health compatible. Many products are situated directly on our body or in our living and working spaces.

Therefore, it is expected that a high-quality product is low in harmful substances and emissions. We also provide such products in terms of interior plaster with our maxit pluscalc eco care product, which has been examined by the eco-INSTITUT and has been found to be good. Its innovative character is on the pulse in terms of the quality and the ecological consciousness linked therewith.

Marriage of glass and mortar

Supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF, Berlin), maxit developed a completely new building material technology with the ecosphere insulation system. maxit initially converted this into interior wall and façade insulation based on mortar under the names "maxit eco 71" and "maxit eco 72". Hollow glass microspheres function here as lightweight aggregates and ensure top values in terms of thermal insulation, weight reduction and long-term stability.

The special feature: The mineral material can be sprayed from a silo and is therefore not only freely formable, but also completely jointless and easy to process.
 

Strengths that convince

  • for indoor and outdoor use
  • long-term stability
  • pure mineral
  • recyclable
  • high energy efficiency
  • low thermal conductivity
  • high heat storage capacity
  • processing from silo or bag
  • familiar handling
  • flexible application
  • high heat and frost resistance
  • weight reduction


Light, stable & ecological – using nature as an example to conserve resources

In recent years, the society has become even more aware of the issue of ecology. Mineral building materials such as ecosphere are also in high demand for façade and interior insulation. As the result of many years of research, a building material technology has now been developed that meets modern requirements. maxit ecosphere is based on the example of nature, which avoids any form of overdimensioning. This can be seen, for example, in the construction of human bones consisting of ideal, multicellular pore structures. Optimum technical parameters, coupled with the conservation of resources, were the credo in the development of insulating materials. The secret of ecosphere are tiny vacuum hollow glass spheres, so-called glass bubbles, which are used instead of building sand or other lightweight materials. This is an important advantage from the point of view of the increasing scarcity of resources. The productivity of ecosphere also speaks for itself: one tonne of dry mortar produces around 8,000 litres of sprayed insulation on the building site. 

 
Advantages of hollow glass beads as lightweight aggregates

  • High compressive strength
  • Good rheological properties
  • Special thermal insulation properties
  • Securing the continuity of resources
  • No use of building sand
  • Non-flammable (A1)


Thermal insulation plus heat accumulator

maxit ecosphere scores with excellent insulating properties and a thermal conductivity of λ10, dry, mat < 0.040 W/(mK) in dry condition. These are achieved by the microscopically small hollow glass spheres, which delay the heat transfer thanks to vacuum confinement. As a result, the outer wall cools down more slowly and dries accordingly faster: ecosphere ensures in a purely physical way that algae and mould hardly have a chance on the façade.


For inside and outside

ecosphere can also make full use of its climate-regulating advantages in the interior insulation of facades: In contrast to panel solutions, the sprayability ensures seamless processing and eliminates the risk of cavities. This prevents waterlogging and mildew formation, keeping the air in the interior permanently healthy.


Insulation in a single operation – without assembly errors

The new ecosphere sprayed insulation is applied – up to a thickness of 100 millimetres without plaster base – classically with the plastering machine and from the silo. Thanks to the sprayability, segregation and assembly errors, which can occur with panel systems, are virtually eliminated. Delivered in the silo, dust pollution on the construction site is also reduced and work steps are saved.

  • Processing from silo or bag
  • For indoor and outdoor use
  • Multi-layer processing "fresh in fresh" without downtimes
  • Familiar handling with commercially available insulation plaster equipment
  • Problem-free insulation of curves and unusual shapes
  • Prevention of cavities
